Kraftin Kimmie Stamps’ April Release Day 4: Hard Workin’ Dudes

Hi there!  Today is the final day of peeks for Kraftin Kimmie’s April Release, and the release party is today at 1pm EST on Facebook!  The final stamp set is another manly set from fabulous artist Emilie Goulet called Hard Workin’ Dudes.  The set comes with two main images and seven mix-and-match sentiments.

I stamped that happy, working man (Boy, that sounds a bit like an oxymoron – at least in my house!) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored him with Copics.  I actually gave him a suit and tie just like my hubby wears (No, he doesn’t wear a big grin like that when he goes to work, but he is a snazzy dresser and LOVES his coffee).  I used my handy, dandy ScanNCut2 to cut out my image and added some shine to his shoes with a white gel pen.

For my background I ink-blended some Wilted Violet distress ink over Neat & Tangled’s Geometric Circles Stencil (It reminded me of a pattern on a man’s tie).  I trimmed that down and adhered it to a white card, tucking in a strip of silver glitter tape.  For my sentiment I die-cut the word “happy” twice from purple cardstock with Simon Says Stamp’s Happy Die.  “Father’s Day” is part of a longer sentiment from Hard Workin’ Dudes (I masked off the portion I didn’t want to use before stamping).  I popped up the sentiment strip with foam tape and finished with a few clear sequins.

Today is also Challenge Day, and, as always, during release week the theme is Anything Goes.  Create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie stamp, and join this challenge by April 20th.  At the end of the month, we’ll announce a winner from all of the weekly challenges for April.  That lucky participant will receive a $40 gift certificate to the krafty shop!

All of the Krafty Design Team members and guests listed below have lots of stunning creations to share with you today featuring the Hard Workin’ Dudes stamp set.  Be sure to hop around and leave some love at each stop because one lucky commenter will win a gift voucher to the krafty shop!  The winner will be announced at the LIVE Online Release Party this afternoon, so don’t miss it!

Happy hoppin’!
